Coos Bay's Shore Acres State Park

Shore Acres State Park is located on sandstone cliffs above the Pacific Ocean.  It was once the estate of timber baron Louis Simpson.  The gardens are lushly planted with flowers and plants from all over the world.

The landscaped area is home to a formal garden, a Japanese garden and lily pond as well as two rose gardens.

The walkway, through the formal garden features a lovely sitting area and water fountain.







It was super overcast and chilly but still, a beautiful walk!

I am sharing today at Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.

  4. Kate, Love that area but its been a while since we've been there. The Pacific northwest is hard to beat just for the scenery alone! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. Oh that black fountain! Beautiful, wow, what can I say! Sorry, am so late in thanking you for being a part of SEASONS - but not less heart felt! I still feel the splash of the water of that fountain, when I say, "see you next week" at SEASONS:)
    Enjoy the rest of your week!

  6. I have visited this garden and remember how beautiful it was. I don't get down to that part of the state very often. Great photos!
